On behalf of the class of '67, I would like the family to know how much we enjoyed sharing their home. Flo was our housemother as we developed into young nurses."100 Lacroix Street" Dorothy Provost and I shared a room and developed a friendship that has lasted the test of time. Our theme was "Moments to Remember", and I reflect on them often.
Our heartflt sympathy, and may the Peace of Christmas fill you with love. Janet Kempe
